New on 19 October 2017:

   Greenland "Wrong Color" Overprint Stamps: I have today added a nicely centered group of NH "wrong color" overprints of the 1945 "American Issue", the 'a' numbers in the Scott #19-25 set. There are also many of the normal-color overprints in NH, Mint Hinged, and even some Used.

   U.S. Classic Stamps: I have now added a really nice group of 33 classic 1847-1873 U.S. stamps, ALL WITH CERTIFICATES, including quite a few stamps that are seldom offered (especially at such reasonable prices).

   U.S. Duck Stamps (several pages): I have just added a very nice group of about 30 Federal "Ducks", from early issues to recent, from NH to Lightly Hinged to Used. These are mostly numbers that I had sold out of, so if you have gaps in your collection, be sure to take a look.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 12 October 2017:

   Greenland Pakke-Porto Stamps: I have just added a very nice mint example of the Scott #Q5 THICK PAPER stamp.

   Iceland Stamps: I have just added a very interesting range of foreign cancellations on Icelandic stamps. These mostly came from mail carried by or posted on the many Icelandic fishing boats that offloaded their catch in Norway, Denmark, United Kingdom, etc. This group includes some really unusual items. I have also added a range of other cancellation types, plate varieties, and also printings of and cancellations on the scarce first 20 aur Official stamp ... including a rare Danish parcel post cancellation on this scarce stamp.

   Malayan States Stamps: I have just added a tremendous range of stamps, starting with Federation issues, and then each State. There are a lot of the "middle values" that are often missing from collections.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 28 September 2017:

   Iceland Airmail Stamps: (3 pages) I have just restocked this section and have added some very nice one-of-a-kind items.

   Sweden Stamps: THE ENGRAVED OSCAR ISSUES (Scott #56-65, 75-76): I have just added a really nice group of NH singles, including some very scarce color varieties. Also some unusual inverted watermarks and top quality stamps, mint and used.

New on 21 September 2017:

   Denmark Stamps: I have just added a wonderful NH Scott #Q10, and a beautiful example of the Scott #87 PEARL GRAY in a combination coil pair (the only source for this stamp), as well as many other attractive stamps.

   Greenland Stamps: Many modern issues have been stocked in mint hinged condition (about 20% less cost than NH).

   Iceland Stamps: I have just added some very nice early plate varieties (including a "retouched hair" on the Double King issue) and several top-notch NH stamps.

   United States Stamps: I have just added a tremendous group of 45 1908-1916 Washington-Franklin and Pan-Pacific Exposition items in the range Scott #333-458. All are either mint hinged or never hinged. 15 HAVE CERTIFICATES (sometimes more than one certificate). The quality and freshness is really outstanding! Included are some of the scarce coils, with certificates of course. If you collect the U.S. issues of this time period, these really deserve your attention.

New on 7 September 2017:

   Sweden Stamps: I have just added a range of early Swedish stamps. Many are examples with well-centered postmarks, but there are also mint and used color varieties and a scarcer plate variety.

   Slania-Engraved: It is not often that I can offer something engraved by Slania, that is a really unusual postal item, which most collectors have never seen. There is a Monaco aerogram with a non-engraved picture of a Slania Royal Palace engraving that many Slania collectors ARE aware of. However, what about that engraving? That engraving exists (though is rarely offered for sale) as an "art engraving". However, a few years before the aerogram was issued, the post office "issued" an engraved official postal Christmas card that they used to send greetings to various officials, journalists, etc. It is this Christmas card which few people know about and of which I can offer an example.

New on 31 August 2017:

   Finland Proofs: One of each sheet of some 1930s commemorative and semi-postal stamps were "taken home without authorization" by a worker in the Finnish stamp printing plant.

   Iceland Stamps: I have just added some interesting Icelandic Officials, including some unusual plate varieties and a NH Scott #O49 with plate number (but priced as a normal single).

   Norway Stamps: I have just added a wonderful mint example of Scott #70a, the early Bluish Green on Yellowish Paper stamp that is rarely offered.

   Several worldwide countries have been added to recently, including Antigua, Ascension, and Bahamas.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New Printed Price Lists Available by Postal Mail  
New printed price lists of all -- and only -- the items on the website are available. The printed price lists do not include the illustrations. Due to the amount of work involved, the printed price lists are updated only every few weeks.

There are separate price lists for:

   Each Scandinavian Country:

       Aland
       Danish West Indies
       Denmark (including Slesvig)
       Faroe
       Finland (including Karelia and North Ingermanland)
       Greenland
       Iceland
       Norway (does NOT yet include all "regular" stamps)
       Sweden (does NOT yet include all "regular" stamps)

   Slania-Engraved items (also Greta Garbo)

   United States Stamps (and few covers)
   Worldwide Stamps (and a few covers). Does not include U.S. or Scandinavia.

   Scandinavian Philatelic Literature

Please only request the lists you actually need; they are very expensive to print and mail.

Please read this if you are in the U.S. or Canada or this if you are in another country. Then send an email and please specifically state if you want specific Scandinavian countries, Slania, United States, Worldwide, or Scandinavian philatelic literature price lists. (Repeated non-specific requests will probably be ignored.)

Please note that these lists only include what you see listed on this website and are provided simply as a convenience. If what you are seeking is not shown on the website, then please send your want list rather than just requesting a price list. (If it is not on the website, it won't be in the price list.) Clients who send want lists always have access to the freshest stock and new items as they come in.

For U.S. and Canadian Clients...
The first copy of printed price lists will be sent to U.S. and Canadian clients at no charge. Further updates can be sent, upon request, at no charge to those clients actively making purchases or who send want lists. Otherwise there may be a postage charge for further updates -- these lists cost several dollars each to print and mail.

For Overseas Clients...
Unfortunately, due to the large number of requests received from overseas people who seem to just collect "free price lists" -- and because a) all the information the lists contain is on this website and b) the overseas airmail postage cost is very high -- there will be a MINIMUM $10 shipping charge (payable by MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, cash, US$ check, etc.) for price lists sent to overseas addresses. A matching-amount credit voucher will be included with the price lists and will be valid only on purchases (totaling) at least five times the amount of the credit. Example: If the shipping cost is $10, you will receive a $10 credit which will be valid on a purchase of $50 or more.

Please email to inform me of the desired price lists and to learn the shipping cost for them. I will need to know exactly which price lists you wish to receive and I will need to know your COMPLETE POSTAL ADDRESS.

Once you have been informed of the shipping cost and if you wish to proceed....

To send shipping cost payment by PayPal, use the email address "paypal@JaySmith.com", use a subject of "Price List Shipping Payment" and be sure to indicate again the price lists you desire and include your complete postal address.

To send your MasterCard or Visa number, please use my secure payment website. For your security, never put a credit card number in a normal email!

To send a US$ check or cash (at your own risk), please see my postal address information.

Facit >> Scott and Scott >> Facit Catalog Number Concordances
 
To meet my own need for catalog number concordances, I have finally started publishing comprehensive catalog number concordances for the Scandinavian countries. At this moment only DWI, Greenland, and Iceland are ready (the later two only up to 1995, so far). However, I will be preparing these bidirectional catalog number concordances for all the Scandinavian countries and eventually will include the other specialized catalogs as well. Reservations are welcomed. These are very inexpensive (considering the labor required to make them) and are published loose-leaf. An attractive binder is available. I intend to update the concordances annually; subscriptions are available. Though these have only been available for a few weeks, they have been a great hit. You will find them extremely useful!  
<<< NEW >>>
Facit Specialized Catalog PAGES BY THE COUNTRY.
 
These are genuine Facit Catalog pages, not copies (of course!). They are loose pages; please be aware that there is no room for binding -- you will have to figure out for yourself how to bind or otherwise manage them. The pricing is by country. There are sometimes conflicts involving back-to-back countries, thus I am offering the pages a number of different ways to compensate for this. Supply is very limited. If you have always wanted a Facit Catalog, but could not justify it for "just one country", this is your chance -- but you must act quickly. Here is more information about the Facit Scandinavian Specialized Catalog.  
Shopping Cart System and Secure Website for Credit Card Payment  
My shopping cart system is fully functional for almost all the price list pages. The cart system will be extended to the few remaining pages very soon. I also have a secure website for secure acceptance of credit card payments. You can use this method any time you wish to send your credit card information: for placing orders, making approval payments, or for updating new issue and Stender supplement credit card information, etc. I take the privacy and security of your information very seriously -- I never share your information with anybody for any reason.  
Scandinavian Philatelic Literature, including the Scandinavian Annual Catalogs  
The web versions of my philatelic literature price lists were last updated on 19 October 2017 and are the most current. Knowledge is the key to enjoying your collection and the key to buying wisely. View the listings live on the web or download the literature price list in PDF format. Let me know If you would prefer a printed copy sent by postal mail.  
Investment Opportunity Information  
Jay Smith & Associates is offering to its clients an opportunity to invest in the company. If you might be interested in interest rates of up to 8% (paid in cash) and up to 15% (paid in merchandise credit), be sure to read the complete information and risk statement.

Sarasota (Florida) National Stamp Exhibition 2018
February 2-4, 2018

This is a thriving national-level show. I very much appreciate that we have been specially invited this year. There is a sold-out 40-dealer bourse, nationally judged exhibits, and other activities. This year it will be the convention show for the Scandinavian Collectors Club and will also be hosting the Colombia-Panama Philatelic Study Group - COPAPHIL; the Canal Zone Study Group; The Florida Postal History Society; The United States Possessions Society; and the Cuban Philatelic Society of America.

Please call 1-800-447-8267 or 336-376-9991, or email if you wish specific material be brought to the show.

AmeriStamp Expo - APS National Winter Show
Birmingham, Alabama
February 23-25, 2018

AmeriStamp Expo 2018 will feature approximately 40 dealers, a dozen societies, 40 meetings and seminars, and first day ceremonies are expected. This show does have exhibits of the one-frame variety (which I sometimes find to be more interesting). The show is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required (advance registration saves you some time and gets you a nicer name tag). Join us!

Please call 1-800-447-8267 or 336-376-9991, or email if you wish specific material be brought to the show.
